From The Daily Dish by Andrew Sullivan, here we have US Republican presidential nominee Senator John McCain (R-AZ) reacting to almost heading the wrong way off the stage after shaking hands with Democratic presidential nominee Senator Barack Obama (D-IL) at the conclusion of the final presidential debate at Hofstra University in Hempstead, New York, October 15, 2008.

Watching the third Presidential Debate, I feel very sorry for John McCain. Consider Barack Obama. He is composed, articulate, intelligent and compassionate. During the debate, he took the high road, making a consistent effort to maintain focus on the enormous challenges that face America. John McCain looked and behaved like a nasty school boy brat in comparison to our future President. It is important to consider each candidate's demeanor, but that's only part of the story. Consider what their proposals mean to the average American, and Barack Obama clearly comes out on top, especially with regard to health care. John McCain's plans, especially on health care, are far less sound than Barack Obama's. And, perhaps most clearly, John McCain made a disastrous choice for a running mate. Sarah Palin is an idiot.
